Our origin story

Paved to Pines started as an idea between two college roommates and best buds, Mitchell Rosko and Steven Glass.

We met playing college hockey in beautiful British Columbia in a city called Castlegar. The outdoor focused Kootenay region and culture brought on our love of fishing, hiking, camping and everything else outdoors related which inevitably led us to find out about Vanlife and Skoolie conversions.

"How cool would it be if we turned a School Bus into an RV?" was a conversation we often caught ourselves in after drinking a few.... root beers.. in College.

Fast forward one year after College, Paved to Pines Founder, Steven decided to make this a reality so he traded his motorcycle for a 1992 Blue Bird 40 Foot School Bus.

After countless weeknights and weekends building our first Skoolie (the DIY community knows what we're talking about), Judy was finally built and Steven was living the Skoolie life full-time!

Paved to Pines wasn't anything more than a pipe dream and a blank Facebook page while Steven and Mitchell founded a marketing company.

While Steven was living in his school bus conversion, it didn't take long for the excitement to build. People started asking him if we could build them a camper from a bus, van, even ambulances. Some people also wondered what the heck he was doing living in a school bus..

Before we knew it, we had turned this pipe dream into a reality, working with people like you to make dream van conversions and school bus conversions come true.

We are now growing dynamic tight knit team that sings just about as much as we work.

We hired Cole after he told he us he played guitar and won a Karaoke league, both are key aspects in our shop culture. On top of singing like an angel, he's basically IKEA with legs, the man can build anything.

Christian, is a multi-faceted, red-headed swiss-army knife. Not only does he also have a top-notch personality that fits our culture, as a finisher, he strives for perfection in all of the little details you'll see in our builds.
